    Escargot Forums Unable to send/receive messages on escargot chat on any client/operating system

    No need to worry about that. You can just create a new account and (hopefully) be done with it.

    Escargot Forums Unable to send/receive messages on escargot chat on any client/operating system

    From what I can tell from your log, it looks like a glitch when trying to start a conversation on the service, so it's essentially an issue beyond your network or our control. Only thing I can suggest is to just make a new account. :/

    Escargot Forums What we know so far of MSNTV2's protocols

    Although it's been a week, I've discovered a lot regarding MSNTV2's internals. A few important ones being that power off code 8086 opens a factory service menu, although that's outside the focus of this post and I won't go in depth into that, the system's specialized interface pages and files...

    Escargot Forums What we know so far of MSNTV2's protocols

    Today I finally decided to muster up the courage to reset my MSNTV2 box so it would function just as if I had bought it new (which I didn't lol). While stuff such as a login page were sacrificed and now possibly no longer exist assuming that was simply pulled from web servers, I was able to find...

    Escargot Forums What we know so far of MSNTV2's protocols

    Update: Was able to build a version of Apache that'd accept SSLv3 connections and I got a little further with the HTTPS SG connection than last time. Sadly, by the time both the client and server finished handshaking, communication stopped from what I could observe in my various packet captures...

    Escargot Forums Unable to send/receive messages on escargot chat on any client/operating system

    Have you checked if you have a firewall on and/or if port 1864 is blocked by your ISP in any way? That's where messaging services are hosted for Escargot (the original service used port 1863 for both presence and messaging servers). EDIT: Didn't see the firewall portion. I'd still check if...

    Escargot Forums Messenger Activity SDK Documentation + Activity Sandbox

    Linked in this post are downloads to the official Messenger Activity SDK, which includes documentation for writing activities and games and an incomplete version of the Tic-Tac-Toe Classic game, and an unofficial Activity sandbox that was developed to allow for testing of Activities without...

    Escargot Forums Ideas about getting back the old patching method

    You're missing my point. The old patches were deprecated for a reason and suggesting that people use those if applying the new patches are "too hard" or troublesome for them is foolish. If people take it upon themselves to use the old deprecated patches that don't retain MSN's full...

    Escargot Forums Escargot Bugs

    That isn't a bug. On 7.5 and below there was no such thing as messaging people who were offline, and while MSN 7 supports receiving offline messages AFAIK only mobile devices could send such messages. On version 8, it's just that right now services aren't implemented for offline messages and...

    Escargot Forums What we know so far of MSNTV2's protocols

    Consider this a sort of follow-up to my thread about the partial archive of MSNTV2 service content I posted a few days ago. A month ago I finally got my hands on a working MSNTV2 box from eBay. I already attempted to get one some months ago but by the time I was able to get a power adapter for...

    Escargot Forums Interesting find of partially archived MSNTV2 service content

    one site containing the box's system sounds, select HTML pages ripped from the system that control how the box operates (again yes they did that), and various test scripts and miscellaneous items. That all changes today. While looking through the system's HTML code that happened to be ripped...

    Escargot Forums I can't get MSN Messenger 5 to work

    I already told you on the Discord server, but I might as well re-iterate here so others are aware. All secure versions of MSN on Windows 9x (so 5.0 - 7.0) for the time being won't work. This is due to the HTTPS incompatibilities that plague XP and Vista, but in this case there's no real way to...

    Escargot Forums Escargot tabs update

    I was thinking of getting to that today, but I was also thinking of adding it to the site and I got conflicted from there. I suppose we can just start off small and do it on the forum for now.
